Barclays has warned that commodities are vulnerable to a wave of investor liquidation event that could push the prices down as much as 25 percent.

“Investors have been attracted to commodities as one of the best performing assets so far in 2016. However, in the absence of any concerted fundamental improvements, those returns are unlikely to be repeated in Q2, making commodities vulnerable to a wave of investor liquidation that we estimate could, in a worst case scenario, knock as much as 20-25% from current price levels,” analyst Kevin Norrish wrote in a note.

    Current subsidies in China were reduced by 20% in 2017 and will be reduced by 40% in 2019 and 100% by 2021. China’s Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) credit system was announced on September 28, 2017, and will begin in 2019 with 10% of credits (12% in 2020) required from new energy vehicles (NEVs). That translates to ~4-5% of EV sales as market share for 2019. We also are expecting an announcement at some stage as to when China will ban ICE vehicles, noting BYD (OTCPK:BYDDY) Chairman Wang thinks by 2030. Others think it will be 2035.

  • [By ]

    The pace of consolidations of Chinese rechargeable battery cell companies is accelerating. We made an assertion in our previous report that, with a few exceptions (CATL, BYD), most Chinese names would be consolidated due to the change of subsidy policy by Beijing, and that the industry is likely to become more oligopolistic. It appears that this trend is becoming more pronounced. According to SNE Research, the combined market share of CATL and BYD in the Chinese EV battery market has grown from 43.9% in 2017 to 63.6% in 1H18. Chinas subsidies are mostly for high- performance rechargeable batteries, and the NEV credit system, which was implemented this year, is designed to give more credits to companies that use high-performance rechargeable batteries. As such, high-end rechargeable batteries are likely to drive demand, but realistically only CATL and BYD (OTCPK:BYDDY) have the capacity to make these batteries in China.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Own Right Now

Shutterstock

We spend most of our working lives contributing money to retirement accounts but what about taking it out in retirement? If you have pre-tax, Roth, and taxable accounts, how much should you withdraw from each one? Here are some things to consider:

1) How much can you safely withdraw? The safest option is to only withdraw earnings and not touch any of the principal but at current dividend yields and interest rates, don’t expect to get much more than about 2% of your portfolio. That’s probably not enough for most people and that number can fluctuate and may not keep pace with inflation in the long term.

The traditional rule of thumb is that you can safely withdraw about 4% of the initial value of a diversified portfolio and increase that amount with inflation for about 30 years. However, the rule was developed during the 1990s when interest rates were higher and many financial experts (including the financial planner who created it) are concerned that the rule is now obsolete. It also doesn’t take into account that you may have to withdraw larger amounts while you still have a mortgage or before you start collecting pension and Social Security benefits so a steady withdrawal rate may not make sense.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

This is a continuation of my first article on TransDigm (NYSE:TDG). Also, I suggest you read Citron’s article to provide the proper context.

Part 2 focuses on the micro/specific risks that may affect the ability of TDG to generate free cash flow, including:

Financials

Estimation of Market Segment Gross Margins

Market Segment Risks

Channel Stuffing Claims

CEO’s Conflict of Interest

Debt

Next Steps

Also, I suggest readers read the following two articles:

Warren Buffett’s 1994 letter to shareholders, particularly the section about Book Value and Intrinsic Value

My interpretation of Buffett’s valuation techniques based on Buffett interviews and quotes

Let’s get into the details.

Financials

A note on my analysis: I analysed TDG inclusive of 2007, but there was one key data point missing for segment sales. To stay consistent, most of my charts start in 2008. Other than that, there wasn’t anything inconsistent about 2007. I also ignored data before the business went public, focusing on the post IPO period. Also note that TDG’s annual year end is 30 September. Therefore, the year 2008 represents October 2007 – September 2008. So take that into consideration when aligning events such as dividends to annual data.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now: U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc.(SLCA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    U.S. Silica Holdings Inc. (NYSE: SLCA) dropped more than 10% Wednesday to set a new 52-week low of $20.08. Shares closed at $23.33 on Tuesday, and the stock’s 52-week high is $38.70. Volume totaled around 6.9 million, more than three times the daily average. The company that supplies fracking sand to oil & gas exploration & production firms had no specific news.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    The stock chart says that shares of U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) have lost one-quarter of their value in 2018 and 47% in the last year alone. The frack sand leader’s operational performance in 2017 says that doesn’t make any sense.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    That isn’t the case in many parts of the country anymore as capacity constraints and labor shortages are making everything more expensive. That’s bad news for producers because it likely means that break-even costs will increase. However, those that can introduce ways to improve efficiency will likely do quite well. One example Miller mentioned was containerized sand, a concept spearheaded by two frack sand producers: U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) and Hi-Crush Partners (NYSE:HCLP). These companies have developed sand hoppers that reduce last-mile shipping and loading times by more than 75%. This translates to significantly fewer trucks needed to move the same amount of sand and less downtime for producers. Both companies are seeing strong demand for the service, and it translates to much higher margins per ton of sand sold compared to their peers.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    On paper, it looks like frack sand supplier U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) had a pretty tough quarter. Even though sales were up significantly, its income numbers fell off a cliff compared to this time last year. That seems to fly in the face of what’s going on in the oil and gas industry, where production is still growing, and demand for services, equipment, and materials remains high.
